Where is flamingo habitat?
The flamingo’s most common habitats are large alkaline or saline lakes or estuarine lagoons with little or no vegetation, which can be found far inland or near the sea. Flamingos also use mangrove swamps, tidal flats, and sandy islands in the intertidal zone.
Why are flamingos pink?
Carotenoids, which give carrots their orange color and turn ripe tomatoes red, are also found in the microscopic algae that brine shrimp eat, and when a flamingo eats algae and brine shrimp, its body metabolizes the pigments, turning its feathers pink.

How do you make flamingo pink?
Place some white and red paint on your palette and mix well. Continue adding a little red at a time until you reach the pink you want to use for your work. Don’t try to make pink by mixing white and red because it will take longer and use up more paint.
